Unlock the potential of your smile with dental veneers. Custom solutions for a radiant, confidence-boosting smile.
Understanding Dental Veneers: Your Guide to a Beautiful Smile
Dental veneers are a transformative cosmetic dentistry option that can dramatically improve the appearance of your teeth. We specialize in providing high-quality veneers tailored to meet your specific aesthetic goals. Whether you’re looking to fix a chipped tooth, close gaps, or achieve a brighter smile, dental veneers offer a versatile solution.
Understanding what dental veneers are is the first step toward achieving the smile you’ve always dreamed of. Essentially, veneers are thin shells made from porcelain or composite material that are bonded to the front surface of your teeth. They are custom-designed to match the color, shape, and size of your natural teeth, ensuring a seamless and natural-looking result.
Choosing dental veneers means opting for a quick and effective way to enhance your smile. We offer comprehensive consultations to determine if veneers are the right option for you. Our team of experts will guide you through the entire process, from the initial assessment to the final placement of your veneers, ensuring you leave our clinic with a smile you’re proud to show off.
How Long Do Dental Veneers Last?
It’s a crucial consideration, especially when you’re investing in your smile. The longevity of dental veneers can vary depending on several factors, including the material used and how well you take care of them.
Porcelain veneers, which are the most popular type, typically last between 10 to 15 years. They are known for their durability and resistance to staining, making them a long-lasting option for those looking to enhance their smile. Composite veneers, on the other hand, generally last between 5 to 7 years but are easier to repair or replace.
Maintaining the longevity of your dental veneers involves regular dental check-ups and good oral hygiene. Simple practices like avoiding hard foods that could chip the veneers and refraining from using your teeth as tools can extend their lifespan. We provide comprehensive aftercare guidelines to ensure you get the most out of your investment.

“Wonderful, welcoming staff always leaves me smiling!”
MiloHappy Client from Kirkland Office
“Great dentist! I came after Covid for my first checkup and cleaning, and ended up needing to have some childhood crowns replaced. During the process they were very thorough, even once getting a crown remade to have a perfect fit. One of those visits came in under the estimate. I appreciate the care they take in their practice. The staff are always nice and fun to talk to. Since my first series I’ve come here for over a year and have always had great experiences. Still need to floss more but the dentists and assistants are super nice about it! Also have great reminder system, and are very patient and thorough when working on insurance issues.”
Elaina ShHappy Client from Kirkland Office
“Went to that office last year to get a crown on implant and Dr. Thomas did the ugliest crown possible. Shape and height looked completely different from natural tooth I had in that place before. He did not even try to fix it. This year my new dentist confirmed that the crown should have been done completely different but now Im stuck with this crown for a while because it will cost a ton to re-do it since that is a dental implant crown, not just a regular crown. I guess I missed the first red flag when they said they do root canals and extractions too. Of course, why even going to roots canals specialists and oral surgeons if You can get a “buffet of services” at Dr. Thomas! Also Molly at the front desk is the rudest receptionist I ve even seen, billing office could not get the numbers right and overcharged me for about $800 then refunded but can this office be more unprofessional and thirsty for money?!!”
Janelle DensonHappy Client from Mercer Island Office
“I love coming here & I’m always greeted with smiles. It truly makes me feel great that the staff remembers my name & even though I visit every six months for my cleanings, our conversations pick up right where we left off. Marna, Rosie & Dr. Thomas are THEE BEST! I’d leave ten stars if I could.”

“Really enjoyed my experience here for a teeth whitening. The Kirkland location is great; it’s close to the freeway so it’s easy to find, and there was designated parking for patients. The staff (I’m talking from front desk to assistants to the doctor) were all very friendly and extremely efficient. I was talked through what they were doing so I felt at ease the entire time.”
